Our Summer School for talented young singers from the West Midlands is back! Open to children aged between 9-13, this 5-day, non-residential course will help develop choral and musicianship skills through a wide range of repertoire, fun singing games and musical activities.
Pupils do not need to be able to sight read music, but they should already have some experience of singing in a choir or playing an instrument.
